Rachel Maddow Mocks Every Obama Conspiracy Theory Since the Long Form Birth Certificate

By: Jason Easley
Feb. 5th, 2013


Rachel Maddow subjects the recent spate of Obama conspiracy theories to the mocking that they so richly deserve.

Video @ link~

Maddow covered a lot of ground. Some of the highlights include Obama bulldozing Reaganís childhood home, Obamaís secret Muslim ring, Obamaís secret gay ring, Obama throwing a football, and the instant classic Obama shooting a gun:

The president faked the unemployment rate, he made it up. also the president is bulldozing President Reaganís childhood homeÖSounds terrible, to say that President Obama is personally going to bulldoze something related to Reagan, even if he isnít? And do you remember Ring Gate? At World Net Daily where Rick Santorum works now. President Obamaís supposed wedding ring is really a secret I am a Muslim ring. ďThe ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years has the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith.Ē Did I say the ring means he is Muslim? No, I meant gay. It secretly proves heís gay. It is a wedding ring, but it is a gay wedding ring, you can see why it would be confused. It is about the whole other theory that thinks he is gay, so the world thinks he is gay-married.

Over at Breitbart, they have been upset about this picture of the president throwing a football. In that corner of the right-wing media, President Obama was not actually throwing a football in this photo. You see, you can tell because he is looking slightly up there. That is just unexplainable. why would you do such a thing? Clearly it is doctored? there is no way in football, you always look to the down or to the side unless youíre a secretly gay-married Muslim, bulldozing Reagan.

Now this is the latest one, according to the right, this is not really the picture of the president shooting a gun. Yes, when the New Republic asked the president if he ever shot a gun, he said yes, he was skeet-shooting at Camp David. The White House supported the claim by tweeting out this picture of the president shooting skeet, and thatís when the cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs right wing fired up the conspiracy machine. According to them, this is not really the picture of the president shooting a gun, you see they can tell because the president is shooting with the gun sort of too flat. It is too straight. See, now, he is too straight. then there is the errant smoke where it shouldnít be. Also his stance, bad form, canít be real. Also a little pot belly. no, Iím not kidding, that was actually part of the argument against the veracity of the picture, you can see his tummy, where you actually had a jelly donut. where he wears a Muslim ring and a gay ring and doesnít really play football, he just looks like he is, where him having a little poochy belly means that the vast left wing conspiracy is photoshopping for political capital on gun control. You know how they do.


That about sums up the recent news from Obama conspiracy land. What Maddow didnít discuss is a segment of the rightís fundamental inability accept President Obamaís success and popularity. Obamaís election times two represents everything that terrifies the right. This president embodies generational change, the darkening face of America, a shift away from conservatism, and the movement of political power out of their hands.

Conspiracy theories are a coping mechanism for a segment of this nation that canít accept the reality that they will no longer be in power. This refusal to accept change has led them to look for conspiracies and excuses. Obama conspiracies offer them hope for the future. If the Obama presidency is a conspiracy, it would mean that their power hasnít been stolen from them. If the Obama presidency is a conspiracy, America isnít changing and they havenít been rejected.

The Obama conspiracies are a form of denial. Each new conspiracy represents another refusal to face reality. As much as the the white, far right hates Obama for his policies, they hate him even more because he represents their growing irrelevance.

1. best line in the article:

I've posted this before, but if you want to make a right-winger mad just say what I say " Liberal thought always wins in the end, we are just arguing about how long it will take." Last time I posted that on another site ( not political) the other person just wrote: grrrrrrrrr

4. Don't tell the "Skeeter Truthers".......

 

........ but that's a very pricey shotgun. It's even Magna-Ported (as evident in the gas pattern that they couldn't figure out).

So he may be shooting....... but he's an elitest snob with a fancy shmancy shotgun! |

I don't know why the administration even responds to this type of batshit crazy teabagger garbage.

5. To expose it

"I don't know why the administration even responds to this type of batshit crazy teabagger garbage. "

To expose it I suspect. One can go too far and merely help the nuts distribute their idiocy. But especially right now, it probably helps a little to continue to relate conservatism to wingnuttery.

6. But wouldn't it be better to allow the wingnuts to hang themselves....

 

......... in the court of SANE public opinion?

But then again........you may be right.

It might be more effective to point to their tin foil hats from time to time! Or it might be more effective to allow them to marginalize themselves with their batshit crazy crap.

Either way....... it's win-win, my friend!
